the obama administration insisted the assault was a protest that got out of hand. fox news confirmed u.s. intelligence did indeed know it was a terror attack of 24 hours of that evening. bill: yesterday the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details wi

. thank you very much? >> thank you. >> gregg: contradictory accounts over a tragedy, obama administration officials not all on the same page when it comes to explaining the deadly attack on our consulate in benghazi libya. does somebody need to be held accountable? we'll ask john bolton. she deck next. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you engineer a true automotive breakthrough? ♪ you give it bold new styling, unsurpassed luxury and nearly 1,000 improvements. introducing the redesigned 2013 glk. see your authorized mercedes-benz dealer for exceptional offers through mercedes-benz financial services. through mercedes-benz extra curricular activities help provide a sense of identity and a path to success. joining the soccer team. getting help with math. going to prom. i want to learn to swim. it's hard to feel normal, when you can't do the normal things. to help, sleep train is collecting donations for the extra activities that, for most kids, are a normal part of growing up. not everyone can be a foster parent... but anyone can help a foster child. >>. >> gregg: obama administration und
that the white house holding meetings about al-qaida threat. the obama administration meeting to talk about the terror group and whether the united states should launch strikes there. the group is dangerous since getting crote of large areas in somalia. the sessions began before the u.s. consulate atact in benghazi that left four americans amtrak collides with a tractor trailer . the train with 169 people on board was heading from oakland to bakersville, california when the truck blew through the passing again. passengers tossed around like rag dolls. >> it was ripped out and fell on top of him. i had to lift up the seat and i found him in his car seat. >> smoke. it was just, the train came apart. >> gretchen: train service suspended in the area. we are one day from the presidential debate. mitt romney in denver. it will make the way for the future of the counsel rye. >> these debates are an opportunity for each much us to describe the path way forward for americans. >> i am concerned about having a serious discussion about what to do to keep it growing. >> gretchen: the high-stakes debate
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came out to the rose garden and told americans these were acts of terror and punished to punish the perpetrators and i have no doubt we will. it does take time t
public perceives the comments is all that matters when you go to the polls. the obama administration was successful in selling this as a spontanous reaction and the media was successful in saying that romney jumped the gun those are the impressions that are left in the american's people's mind it is hard it go back and change perceptions that are in the american people's. >> brian: the president shows the president lost five poigns on the foreign policy aruval rating. but president obama has to feel good about another national poll that shows him with a lead if it was head-to-head with and we were not doing the electoral system. he's up on ryan where we are a dead heat. he is up over president obama. >> it is within the margin of error. it is essence a close race. battle ground polls that came out i believe it was newscast left was touth a big wide margin that obama is widening on romney. they are skewed and we talk body it. >> brian: our science is not skewed. >> gretchen: president obama up five points. >> they are over polling. >> gretchen: over all president obama is up in the fo
the obama administration's response to the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi as bizarre. corker, a republican from tennessee making the statement in a letter to national intelligence and wants to know what led up to the death of ambassador chris stevens, two navy seals and a worker. and steve centanni, what's the latest in washington. >> the fbi has yet to enter benghazi because of the dangerous security climate there. senator corker who sits on the foreign relations committee wants to know why, and he fired off a letter to intel chief james clapper, calling the situation bizarre and demanding answers and says in part, 18 days ago, the administration judged it was appropriate for our consulate to be lightly guarded. and what has changed in libya in such a short time. is that even fbi agents and our personnel entered the city. and the u.n. ambassador susan rice who has said a few days after the attack, that it appeared to be a spontaneous uprising and the long video. >> and we have reports now that intelligence people knew within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack and yet,
attal islamic militants. is it your sense that the obama administration was owe live just to the known danger or they simply ignored it? >> you know, i don't know. i think we'll find out but it is clear that they missed the growing threats and they purposefully downplayed these threats. i think that's the trouble. gregg: sources have now confirmed to fox news that intel officials knew within 24 hours that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know that is not true. like a balloon, if you crush the balloon and just looking at the front of it looks like al qaeda may be dead but you missed the fact that it is popping out in all these other areas. gregg: wh
in the obama administration. the president has focused a lot on the middle class, both in his policies and the rhetoric, the fact that the way the economy is playing out distributionly has been so skewed. >> i think that's a fair critique. my personal view is there should have been a larger stimulus. that would have helped consumer demand, it would have helped the middle class more. the distributional effects are skewed. the stock market, a lot of people have their pensions in there. a lot of unions have pensions in there. the stabilization of the market and taking the market from 6,000 -- >> and the growth. >> and the growth has helped a lot of middle class families. i think that's being reflected in the battleground support. >> joe? >> one area where i agree with sheila completely is the sort of failure to look at that household debt to gdp chart that you showed earlier and say, this is the problem. there has been a lot of confusion, i think, people talk about the banks, the national debt, whatever. this was the core of the issue, the fact that households had too much debt and that t
the obama administration. >> in the book you write about the obama's administration handling of the withdrawal from iraq. the administration had a fresh chance to reengage with iraq's leaders and shape its politics. obama did not act decisively on that chance choosing ahead to take hands off approach on iraq. this decision was characteristic of those obama made on iraq. he saw america's involvement there not as an opportunity but rather as a leftover minefield, a path out of which had to be charted as quickly as possible. explain that to us. >> at the end of the bush administration, the beginning of the obama administration, violence was down substantially in iraq. the question was were we going to keep a small number of troops in iraq after 2011? how would that be negotiated? there was a significant difference, i think, in perspective between the pentagon where admiral mullen, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, civilians, saw iraq as an opportunity. they wanted to keep a reasonably sized force around 16,000. at the white house, the national security adviser saw it more t
the administration's handling of the u.s. consulate in libya. several senators sending a letter to president obama. the believing they had with hillary clinton left them with many unanswered questions. catherine herridge is in washington this mourn. what are we learning about the letter. >> reporter: thank you and good morning. fox was first to obtain this letter. significantly it's signed by the heads of the intelligence, armed services, appropriations, skwrurb dish airy and foreign relation commit taoets who have oversight on these issues. they are disturbed by statement made by the members of the administration that would lead americans that this attack was a protest gone wrong . we stand ready to return to washington. right after the briefing thursday on capitol hill by the secretary of state and the director of national intelligence they indicated it was inadequate. >> they did give some information but said that something that they said could be talked about outside, so i guess i didn't learn anything. it's nice to see you all, but there i not really much to say. >> i think it was very impor
about that bill. that is something the obama administration has not embraced. that is a b bipartisan bill. john boehner is not a fan of that bill but mitt romney will have to tuck more about that to goes the gap in ohio. arthel: we'll be watching. it's an exciting race to say the least and weep it here on the fox news channel for all your details all the way up to november 6th and beyond. thank you, bob. jon: remembering andy williams, we'll look back at life and career of a singer who brought us some unforgettable music, hits like "moon river," "can't get used to losing you." as arthel just mentioned president obama and governor mitt romney both in the battleground state of ohio today. the president we're told is prepared to launch attacks against his opponent over china so, what is that all about? we'll get into it ahead. arthel: right now new information on crime stories we are keeping an eye out for you. a jamaican man accused of murdering a south carolina couple at their vacation home. the 28-year-old security tpard is charged with fatally stabbing michael and tell ma king at th
court is now back in session for the first time since it ruled on the obama administration's landmark health care law last june. so how might mitt romney change the high court if he becomes president of the united states? he's already giving all of us some major clues. let's bring in cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns who's taking a closer look. what are you seeing? >> the supreme court doesn't get talked about that much on the campaign trail. but choosing a justice is one of the most important things a president does. it's how on administration puts its mark on some of the nation east toughest, most divisive issues. and we have a look at how mitt romney might handle it if he's president. whenever mitt romney fielded questions during the primaries about his picks for the supreme court, he was armed with a stock republican answer. >> what i would look to do would be to appoint people to the supreme court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to to legislating from the bench. >> reporter: but he wouldn't choose a favorite. >> would you pick one, please? >> y
to pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. >>> the obama administration now defending its original assessment of the attack that killed four americans in libya on september 11th. they are no longer calling it spontaneous violence sparked by outrage over that anti-islam trailer. but rather a deliberate act of terrorism. senator john mccain told our candy crowley there is much more to this story. >> that doesn't pass the smell test. it was either willful ignorance or abysmal intelligence. to think that people come to spontaneous demonstrations with heavy weapons, mortars and the attack goes on for hours. >> the president called it an act of terror the day after it happened. but when you're the responsible party, when you're the administration, you have a responsibility to act on what you know and what the intelligence community believes. this was -- this is being thoroughly investigated. >> i'm joined by phone from tripoli, libya. welcome. >> hi, carol. >> i'm just wondering, the obama administration says they're going to catch the people who killed the u.s. ambassador and three othe
the issue, he said from the beginning that people are underestimating the resolve of the obama administration to go to war in iran on nukes and they've consistently done it. because the president's deft saying the diplomat ex-thiic t b public has an understanding, there's trust there and it's difficult for an opponent to make hay, the president's communicated i'm going to say one thing, i'm going to say another thing, our goal is to make sure that we get what we want out of the situation that there's not a war in the middle east. >> i think the american public appreciates a now onned position. richard, how much do you think the american public understands the bull herbiishness of bib netanyahu, bilateral meetings in the oval office to meeting with congress and support of basically tacit support of mitt romney's candidacy? >> for a starter it's hard for any foreign leader, even one that generally americans feel favorably to that country, it's very hard for any foreign leader to intervene and try and nudge the balance of a domestic election. it risks hugely backfiring. actually t
as the obama administration. instead he yoked himself to ryan who is the architect of a radical and fprofane agenda in the house. he's tied to washington in an unpu unpopular agenda. >> during an interview after collecting paul ryan, governor romney said he's running on his budget and not congressman ryan's. let me play that. >> i have my budget plan, as you know, that i put out. that's the budget plan we're going to run on. >> you heard mitt romney there, so is it fair to assume he will follow paul ryan's blueprint? >> his senior adviser ed gillespie said if his budget reached his desk, he would have signed it. reverend norquist said the real leadership in the republican party is not located the in the oval office but in congress, and what republicans really need is sort of a human equivalent of up an auto pen. somebody with enough fingers to sign legislation. if you look at this legislation, it's not just a return to the days of george w. bush. on everything from environmental regulations to abortion to gun rights, it's worse than bush. so some of his centrist supporters they make this arg
the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the attack to fit a convenient storyline that it was spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: rogers, who told fox one day after the attack that it was, indeed, terrorism, saying the statement from the director of national intelligence on friday appeared to be an effort to obscure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about this. again, americans need to understand the truth, and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> reporter: fox news asked an administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows over current career intelligence officials including adviser john brennan, national security adviser donilon, james clap
to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of united states of using a government program to manipulate people do not get a job, to be dependent on the government for services? impressed. we are a few minutes and -- >> let me finish. pressed we're a few minutes and and you have now three times call me crazy on observing that the president has expanded government dependency. >> you are saying he is manipulating american civil democratic. -- so they will vote democratic. >> let's talk about the issue of benefits. in 1960, 20% -- of federal spending went to individual spent -- payments. this year, 65% of federal spending goes to individual payments. i would suggest we do have a problem with government -- >> we had a downturn in the economy. we of hard times, p

being undeniable good thing for the administration, for obama, in ohio, romney's particular formative personal problems i think were coming -- are losing him the election in ohio as well. the rich guy, the boss, the -- all that stuff, that is part narrative, part real, just is killing him. >> the james lipton was on this program and said another word for job creators is, bosses. and that's exactly -- the republicans have done a masterful job in sort of changing the game on that but mitt romney is a boss fund mentally as you said. melinda, your colleague, e.j. dion in the washington post writes the latest washington post polls in ohio and florida underscore the trouble mitt romney is having gaining on the economy. basically e.j. saying the republicans have had a very sort of crass attitude towards how the americans will vote. if you're looking at the poll numbers seems like the american public has more of a nuance view as far as the economy. >> the interesting thing to me about the numbers in ohio, is that even those who say the economy is going badly, blame kasic as much as they blame
the sacking at the u.s. embassy, the killing of the ambassador. the administration did not on that story to coexist with their theme and how great an anti terror policy obama had. they deceived the country, sending susan rice out on the sunday shows and attending that this was the outcrop -- outgrowth of a demonstration. everybody over the age of nine could see that it was premeditated. that is why it was ppressed until it could no longer be suppressed. >> i am not aware of the conspiracy that charles has his own strange and wonderful sources -- >> how do you explain her -- >> i am going to try to explain my moderator's question about this. the problems were pulle -- the problem republicans have is that mitt romney has never c cracked the threshold of being a possible commander in chief. it does punish the obama record, and there's no question that osama bin laden took the wind out of the cells of the republican candidates. it was an enormous credential for obama. but because romney chose paul ryan, he in no way filled out the emptiness of his own resume in foreign policy. for that reaso
